The fact that no one in American team sports has come out while still active in his sport says everything.
A senior Jets executive says the situation surrounding Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o is “unusual” and “scares you a little bit” in the upcoming NFL draft.
“I think that’s pretty much an inappropriate question to ask a kid,” Suggs said. “If the kid can play, regardless of what he does with his off-the-field time … I think that’s the only thing he really needs to be held accountable for.”
Yankees ace CC Sabathia has taken part in the latest internet sensation. The jovial left-hander tweeted on Tuesday, “You Ready? Me & friends made a Harlem Shake video. Give me your rating 1-10 & give it a RT if you like it #HarlemShake.”
The Notre Dame star and Heisman Trophy runner-up was clocked at 4.82 seconds in the 40-yard dash. NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock had said on Sunday that anything faster than 4.7 would be “phenomenal.” Anything 4.8 or over would be a “concern.”
The former Notre Dame linebacker also said he has shut down his Twitter account and isn’t sure if he will ever use social media again.
It’s been a rough stretch for Manti Te’o. And now he’s right behind disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong on Forbes’ list of “America’s Most Disliked Athletes.”
The man who said he tricked Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o into falling for a fake woman he created online claims that the hoax had “everything to do” with escaping from real life because he had been molested as a child.
Tuiasosopo said he was the voice of Kekua but initially refused to recreate it when pressed by McGraw. He eventually agreed to do the voice behind a privacy screen, something McGraw promised to show during part two of the interview on Friday.
This was also the month that Lance Armstrong finally came clean about his years of doping to become a cycling champion. Also in sports and due, at least in part, to the cloud cast by performance-enhancing drugs, no one was elected to the Baseball Hall Of Fame.
“I asked him straight up, ‘Was this a romantic relationship with you?’” Dr. Phil McGraw said Wednesday. “And he says ‘Yes.’”

Katie Couric joined the “Boomer & Carton” program one day after her much-anticipated interview with Manti Te’o aired Thursday.
Manti Te’o said that the feelings he had for what turned out to be a fake, online girlfriend were real, and he reiterated that he had nothing to do with the hoax.
While Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o thought he was talking with girlfriend “Lennay Kekua” for hours on end, he was actually on the phone with his male hoaxer, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo’s lawyer told the New York Daily News.
